"Strider and the Rangers pursue their fallen brother Amdir to the Blackwolds' camp, but not all is as it seems...."

Background

Objective 1

Strider and his kinsmen, Torthann and Lenglinn, have led you to the outskirts of the brigand camp. Strider beckons to you.

Torthann: 'I yearn to put an end to these brigands, but you should speak to Strider first. he is directing our efforts.'
Strider: 'Can you feel the chill in the air? It is no natural cold, but the chill of fear, of evil. I doubt not that Amdir is here, but there is a greater evil as well.
'We should split our strength. For the good of Middle-earth, none can be allowed to escape. Lenglinn and I will look for another way inside, while you and Torthann search for Amdir.
'We must be quick now, before the evil bursts forth from here and threatens all of Bree-land.'
Lenglinn says, "Amdir's terror must end now!"
Strider says, "It is time for us to act."
Strider says, "Torthann, take <name> with you and head to the main gate."
Strider says, "Lenglinn and I shall look for another entrance and press the attack from there."
Torthann says, "Yes, sir."
Strider says, "Good. Lenglinn, let us go."

Objective 2

  • Help Torthann enter the Blackwold camp

Strider told you to speak with Torthann when you are ready to begin your search for Amdir. Strider and Lenglinn will find a back way in.

Torthann: 'Come with me. It is time to deal with Amdir and these brigands. If Amdir escapes, it could spell doom for Middle-earth.'
Torthann says, "Let us go! We must find Amdir!"
Torthann says, "Wait! Someone is coming. Let us see who it is!"
Blackwold Enforcer says, "What were those things? That dwarf has gone mad!"
Torthann says, "Brigands! Get them!"
Torthann says, "Onwards! We must find Amdir!"
Blackwold Enforcer says, "Die, in the name of the Blakwold!"
Blackwold Enforcer says, "Everything is growing black..."
Blackwold Cutthroat says, "Go away!"
Torthann says, "If you need rest, then now is the time to steel your nerve!"

Objective 3

  • Discover what is causing the brigands's fear

Strider told you to speak with Torthann when you are ready to begin your search for Amdir. Strider and Lenglinn will find a back way in.

Torthann: 'Down there, in the southern corner of the camp...the source of the Blackwold's fear is there! Come!'
Torthann says, "Let me see about this gate."

Objective 4

  • Discover what is causing the brigands's fear

Torthann sensed the source of the brigands' fear in the southern corner of the camp. You should investigate.

Skorgrím says, "Why are you so worried, Blackwold?
Blackwold Informant says, "What do you want with me! I don't know anything!"
Blackwold Informant says, "No, no, no! Stay away!"
Skorgrím says, "There, there now. There's no need for concern...yet."
Skorgrím says, "Did you think service to Angmar came without a cost?"
Skorgrím says, "Ah! I have found them after all. You are relieved of your obligations, Blackwold."
Skorgrím says, "Now, to deal with you, Ranger!"

Objective 6

  • Speak with Torthann

Torthann sensed the source of the brigands' fear in the southern corner of the camp. You should investigate.

Torthann: 'Who was that dwarf and what power has he to command wights? That the Blackwolds were in terror of that creature is certain, but I still sense something greater still in these ruins.
'And where is Amdir? Perhaps beyond that gate.'
Torthann says, "Come friend, this is not the end of our business here!"
Torthann says, "I fear that foul dwarf is not the end of the evil here."
Torthann says, "The greatest evils may be behind this gate. Rest now, for we will need all our strength ahead!"

Objective 7

  • Defend Torthann as he searches for Amdir

Torthann is not convinced that the evil ends with the wight and thinks that Amdir is somewhere near by. Perhaps there is more to the camp.

Torthann says, "Do not lose your nerve!"
Nazgûl says, "You shall not interfere!"
Nazgûl says, "Amdir is now a servant of the Great Eye!"
Nazgûl says, "Now, Amdir! Take on the robes of the Cargûl -- the Foresworn!"
Éogan says, "My Lords! The Rangers approach with fire!"
Nazgûl says, "The fools are too late. Amdir's change is nearly complete!"
Nazgûl says, "Come, brethren, we must leave. Now is not the time for such a fight."
Nazgûl says, "We leave Amdir and these fools in your care, Éogan!"
Éogan says, "Yes, my lord!"
Strider says, "You do not belong here, Nazgûl!"
Éogan says, "We do your bidding, Master!"
Lenglinn says, "Do not let them escape!"
Amdir says, "You are too late! I am Cargûl! I serve the Great Eye!"
Torthann says, "I am sorry, Amdir...be at peace...."

Objective 8

  • Speak with Torthann

Torthann beckons to you.

Torthann: 'It is a day both dreary and joyous. It grieves me that we were forced to slay Amdir, but a relief that he should now know peace.
'I will lead you back to Strider. I will return to my camp.'
Torthann: 'The very air seems polluted by this night's business. We should tarry here no longer.'
